This is taken from the top of Geenough St., The Windmill on the left hand side , Reg Sutton 's on the opposite side, both just out of shot. The first woman counsellor(Labour) lived at 37 Greenough St., she was elected in 1920 for Lindsey ward, she became the first woman of the watch committee in 1929.A truly remarkable woman
